PechaKucha Night, devised in Tokyo, as an event for young people to meet, network, and show their work, has turned into a worldwide celebration, with events taking place all over the world, including right here in Pittsburgh!  Drawing from its name, the Japanese term for “chit-chat”, PechaKucha relies on a presentation format based on a simple idea, 20 images x 20 seconds.  It is a dynamic presentation style where presenters have a total of six minutes and forty seconds to pair words and images.

Three times per year, AIA Pittsburgh partners with AIGA Pittsburgh to bring you PechaKucha Night. Check our events calendar for future dates. Sign up for eColumns, our weekly e-newsletter, to stay informed
